Oh my, what a fine bunch of replies! Thank you all very much and esp. for your links. Not too late!
Re making jam. Of course, that is what I do with 80% of my berries, but I can't get to the store for Pomona's Pectin for a few days (we are far away from the store). So I wanted to freeze most of them first and then get to the jamming later in the season.
CharlieD - is there any reason why we can't make raspberry jelly from frozen berries? I am not an expert jellymaker (it always turns out cloudy) but I would love to take a crack at this. I believe there is a preserving section on this forum?
Merstar, I would be most grateful for your recipes for Cream Pie, Russe & Fools.
The only "fool" I've ever made was with rhubarb.
Thanks all for your assistance.
I went and emptied the refrigerator out to make room for the berries so the kitchen is in a bit of a calamity...
